Once opted for the course of Engineering, it becomes imperative to look for the best-suited college out of a long list of options available.
While some colleges are located in urban parts of well-developed cities, others got their space in some rural areas to help develop the culture, mindset and technological aspects of that expanse.
Some do promise highest packages, handsome salaries and international contacts to the companies while others promise the best overall development and much-enhanced personality of their students.
Now the colleges that earned the position in the following list of ‘Best Engineering Colleges In India’ are a perfect blend of academics, sports, culture, technology, and handsome salary. Let’s have a look at those colleges!
India has a large number of both privately owned and government engineering institutions spread across the whole country but the ones those have edge over all the other are the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).
A dream of every engineering aspirant, IITs are one of the best technology institutes of the country with best teaching facilities, that’s why ‘a hub of toppers’.
These 15 IITs are institutions of ‘National Importance’ established through an Act of Parliament for nurturing excellence in education.
Admissions to these institutes take place through a joint entrance examination (IIT-JEE), which gets conducted in two stages ‘IIT-JEE Main’ and ‘IIT-JEE Advanced’ where students are filtered at each stage.
Alumni of these institutions occupy pivotal positions in industry and academics across the globe. From top-notch CEOs to famous scientists, from young entrepreneurs to quirky entertainers, successful IIT alumni have spurred generations of students.
Sundar Pichai, Vinod Khosla, Chetan Bhagat,Raghuram Rajan,Nandan Nilekani, Biswapati sarkar, Arunabh kumar, Sachin Bansal, N.R. Narayana Murthy are all IITians.
Here’s a list of some top IITs:
Comprising 30 autonomous institutes, NITs are a group of higher education engineering institutes in India, located in each major state/territory of India.
In 2007, through legislation, the Indian government declared these schools as ‘Institutes of National Importance’ at par with the IITs. Here in NITs, there 50% quota for students of the same state and the remaining 50% is for all the other state to promote socio-cultural diversity in the institution.
Admissions to the Undergraduate Programmes at these institutions for all Indian and Foreign nationals are made through the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main. Only those applicants who meet the NITs’ cutoff criteria for B.Tech are shortlisted for counselling and seat allotment.
The top rank holders of JEE Main examination get into the most in-demand branches of top-ranked NITs. All those who could not make it to the top ranks in the JEE Mains can opt for moderately ranked NITs or Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs).
The alumni from NITs occupy a significant position in the industry. Rajeev Kapoor, CEO, Fiat India Automobile Private; P. K. Munjal, MD, Hero Honda; Rakesh Bakshi, Padma Shri awardee; Sanjay Dhawan, President and CEO, Symphony Service; Perry Mehta, President & CEO of Futurenet Group, Nitish Kumar chief minister of Bihar, Subhash Menon Founder, Subex systems and many other notable people are graduated from various National Institute of Technologies.
Here’s a list of some top NITs:
Along with IITs and NITs, for the last 15 years, a new Technical Institutes called IIITs are building up their mark in the country. These are a group of public engineering institutes in India, some of which are managed and funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), while the others are set up on the public-private partnership (PPP) model.
Even though these group of institutions is very new in comparison to IITs and NITs, many of them provide high-quality education, infrastructure, and facilities and these institutions also hold the status of ‘Institutes of National Importance’.
Admissions into undergraduate programmes in these 23 institutions are through the JEE-Main examination. One has to clear the certain cut-off criteria and be amongst or above the middle-rank holders of JEE-Main to claim one of those 4000 seats in the IIITs.
Here’s a list of some top IIITs:
So we have talked about top government engineering institutes namely IITs, IIITs, and NITs which provide an undergraduate degree to thousands to students each year, but, admission to these institutes is not a piece of cake and allows limited attempts (3 for JEE Mains and 2 for JEE Advanced).
Thankfully, there are colleges that provide world-class education facilities, promises a large number of opportunities and work on the overall development of their students.
Some of them are comparable and widely perceived comparable to top-level colleges of IITs and NITs. They are no way less than any public engineering institutes, rather some of them provide more facilities and bring in their campus more companies to recruit final year students
